Charming look and powerful features

Today we are going to take a look at one of the most unconventional watches from atelier Panerai - the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio.

The Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic in steel, also known more simply as the PAM00524, is a great choice for enthusiasts of Panerai’s iconic Luminor case and demanding Paneristi that want something a little more special to stand out from the traditional aesthetic and functions.

The chronograph and Flyback function bring together impressive performance. In terms of design, the watch has a powerful stance and a vintage appeal - at the same time. It is definitely not a traditional dress watch, but still, it matches perfectly with conteporary business style

PAM00524 takes user friendly experience to the next level: on the left side of the case are pushers with markings that clearly indicate their purpose. At 10 o’clock, the pusher is marked “S” for start and stop, while at 8 o’clock, the pusher is marked “R” and “F” for reset and Flyback

For the ones not familiar with a Flyback function, it lets the wearer reset and start the chronograph caliber without first stopping and then reseting and starting it again.

Pushing the Flyback button is enough to reset the chronograph to zero and after which the chronograph seconds hand will immediately resume timing without any interruption.
This is especially useful for timing quick continuous events, like lap times.

Incomparably legible and utterly elegant

In terms of design, the case is based on Panerai’s very popular 44 mm Luminor 1950 case. Thanks to its bold cushion shape design and its instantly recognizable crown-protecting device, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio is without a doubt sizable, and has noticeable wrist presence but it doesn't reflect on everyday comfor.

Despite its proportion, the Panerai PAM00524 on wrist actually wears quite well on the wrist, thanks to the long, curved lugs and comfortable leather strap with contrast stitching, decorated with authentic trapezoidal, engraved clasp

The sleek bezel is polished, while other parts of the case are delicately brushed, which makes a nice contrast. The first thing that strikes eyes is the bright blue chronograph seconds hand. It also lets other Paneristi know immediately that this Panerai is in a way special.

According to diving tradition, Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio is waterproof to 100 meters

And unlike other Panerai timepieces, the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Acciaio has markers for the individual minutes, which is necessary for the renowed and practical chronograph function. The individual minute markers, as well as the larger hour markers, and hours, minutes and running seconds hands are all rendered in matching ecru, which gives the dial a warm and nostalgic aura.

The P.9100 calibre is produced entirely in the prominent manufacture in Neuchâtel, with materials and standards of workmanship at the peak of the elite watchmaking

Even the date on the black with luminous Arabic numerals is printed in the same ecru color, which is a nice and thoughtful touch. Under the 12 o’clock markers, it simply points out Luminor Panerai inscription and above the 6 o’clock marker, it just subtly specify Flyback sign, leaving proud owners in no doubt of the watch’s performance and functions.

P.9100 - heart of performance and reliability

Enabling impeccable performance is one of the Panerai’s finest caliber - P.9100, manufacture first automatic chronograph movement, now with useful Flyback function.

Delicate Calibre P.9100, Panerai’s first automatic chronograph movement with reputable Flyback function is visible through the transparent sapphire caseback
